Lucky Shamrocks

My 11 year old boy made these cool hanging felt shamrocks for our window. (He wanted me to make sure that you know he was VERY bored and needed something to do and he got to use the sewing machine —stressing the MACHINE part, so it was all good)

We took two layers of felt and cut out a shamrock shape.  My crafty boy used a sewing machine to beautifully stitch the layers together and also stiched  in a ribbon at the top.  He added a few beads on the ribbon and now they our hanging in our window—hopefully bringing us lots of luck!  If you need some luck, here are the shamrock shapes we used.

    Wow, look at him! That is so awesome, thanks for sharing the shamrock pattern. I just *knew* you wouldn’t be able to shut out St. Patrick’s Day, thank goodness for crafty boys! :0)

    Hello there, I love those shamrocks.. great idea. I hope you don’t mind but after having seen your crayon roll tutorial on Sewmamasew, I had to make one, (featured on my blog today). And I have credited your site and tutorial on my post… from the comments so far, looks like a lot of people will be making your crayon rolls!

    Wow! Those of us lucky (get it!) to know your son, know what a talented, kind and caring guy he is! I don’t know of too many 11 year old boys that can cook, clean, baby-sit, ski like a pro, install hardwood flooring (yes, I REALLY did say that), play basketball & baseball with skill, knit scarves for his teachers, not to mention sew — blankets for lonesome babies in China and shamrocks for his family! Some girl out there is going to be awfully lucky in about 15 more years! Did I mention he is a really cute and nice kid? Okay, I may sound like the proud aunt — but this is all true and everyone who knows him agrees! He is also “lucky” to have a very talented and kind, patient mom and dad! We love you!!
